President Akufo-Addo is launching the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO), a major programme to tackle graduate unemployment in Kumasi today.
The launch happening at the Great Hall at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) will see several youth and National Service Personnel participating.
The program; NABCO will initially operate seven modules designed to meet the pressing needs of the nation while providing jobs for the teeming youth who have received tertiary education but are struggling to find jobs.
About 100,000 graduates who have completed their National Service according to Vice President Dr. Bawumia, are expected to be engaged under NABCO this year.
Meanwhile some nurses in the country are already kicking against this new initiative by government.
The Coalition for Public Trained Registered Nurses and Midwives in a statement, described as “very sad” government’s plan to recruit them under the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO), calling on members to reject government’s move.
The Coalition of Unemployed Nurses (CUN) also unanimously kicked against government's Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) policy, arguing that their 'rigorous training' qualifies them for better employment opportunities than government is proposing.
